The arrival of summer also means the arrival of hurricane season. The National Weather Service reminds boaters to always monitor the weather and be prepared for emergencies.
Along the East Coast, hurricane season runs from June through the end of November. Here in the Northeast, we don’t get hurricanes too often, but when we do, the hurricanes and tropical storms can move fast, unpredictably, and cause a tremendous amount of damage. That’s why the United States Coast Guard urges boaters to be prepared to act quickly.
